Poetry

Gene Stecher

The dark side of enlightenment:

Leading armies in subjugation,
Trying to eat rocks,
Leaping off the pinnacle of the Temple.
What a relief, the bright side of enlightenment
Only requires having one's head chopped off
or going one better with Crucified agony.
You are my beloved messianic slave of all, with you
I am well pleased.
How far ahead did Jesus know,

Prior to breathing his last?

Gene Stecher Chambersburg, Pa.
